Laurel, MD Changes in Catalog Information Capitol College reserves the right to make changes in policies, procedures, degree requirements, schedules, course offerings and other college standards or announcements to meet circumstances that may arise after publication. The provisions of this publication are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the student and Capitol College. The college reserves the right to change any provision or requirement in any college publication without notice at any time during the student s term of attendance. Capitol College reserves the right to require a student to withdraw, or to refuse to grant a degree or certificate if, in the judgment of the administration of the college, the student fails to meet the college s requirements satisfactorily. The college reserves the right to change tuition and fees at any time at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. Student Records The procedures and guidelines adopted by Capitol College (hereinafter occasionally referred to as the college ) regarding student records comply fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). This federal law establishes the rights of students to inspect and review their records, and provides students with a mechanism for correcting inaccurate or misleading data found within a student s education record. Moreover, FERPA guarantees the privacy of students education records. Specifically, FERPA limits the disclosure of personally identifiable, non-directory, information from education records, without the consent of the student. Consistent with its obligations, Capitol College will not release personally identifiable information from a student s education records without the student s consent, except in circumstances permitted by FERPA (e.g., in connection with a health or safety emergency). Education records are records, files, documents and other materials containing information directly related to a student that are maintained by Capitol College. For example, records maintained by faculty advisors, the Office of Admissions, Office of Financial Aid, the Business Office, the Office of Career Services, Dean of Students Office, and Office of Registration and Records, are generally education records. Student Review of Education Records Students are entitled to inspect and review education records maintained by Capitol College. Students who wish to access a particular record should contact the office responsible for maintaining that record. The college will produce the record within a reasonable period of time, although in most instances the college will allow the student to review the record immediately upon request. Certain documents, including financial records of parents, are not available to students. A student who, after reviewing their records, believes they contain information that is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of the student s rights of privacy, may request that Capitol College amend the record. Students should submit such requests, in writing, to the official from whom the record was obtained. Alternatively, students may submit written requests to Melinda Bunnell-Rhyne, Dean of Student Life and Retention. Capitol College will decide whether to amend the record, as requested by the student, within a reasonable time after receiving the request. If Capitol College declines to amend the record as requested, it will inform the student of its decision. In this instance, the student is entitled to request a hearing to determine the merits of his or her request. Students may request copies of their Capitol College education records. Reproduction of academic transcripts costs $10 per copy. However, Capitol College will not copy records for students with unpaid financial obligations. Disclosure of Information Contained in Education Records Capitol College will generally not disclose personally identifiable information contained in a student s education records without the student s prior consent. However, FERPA does allow Capitol College to disclose such information in certain, limited circumstances. For example, Capitol College may disclose information in a student s education records to school officials within Capitol College whom the college has determined to have a legitimate educational interest in the information. A school official generally has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. School officials include: professors; instructors; administrators; health staff; counselors; attorneys; clerical staff; trustees; members of committees and disciplinary boards; and a contractor, volunteer or other party to whom the college has outsourced institutional services or functions. Capitol College may also disclose a student s directory information without consent. Directory information includes, but is not General Information 2 Capitol College 3

Capitol will develop plans to ensure the sustainability of the organization. History Since its start more than 80 years ago, Capitol College has remained true to its mission preparing students for careers in a quickly changing world. With a tradition of academic excellence and practical learning, Capitol College has equipped its alumni with the knowledge and skills to evolve with the advanced sophistication of technology. Capitol College was founded in Washington, DC as the Capitol Radio Engineering Institute in 1927, by Eugene H. Rietzke. A Navy veteran and radio operator, Rietzke foresaw the need for an advanced school that could produce talented radio and electronics technicians. CREI began as a correspondence school, but its popularity led to the 1932 opening of a residence division allowing students to work hands on in laboratories. As radio technology improved, new training programs and courses were quickly added. Following World War II, CREI became one of the first three technical institutes accredited by the Engineers Council for Professional Development. The institute entered a new era in the mid-1950s when it began awarding threeyear AAS degrees. The school expanded its reach to new programs in applied engineering and electronics. To reflect this evolution, the institute changed its name to Capitol Institute of Technology in It awarded its first bachelor of science degrees in 1966 to four graduates of its electronics engineering technology program. Anticipating the need for more room, Capitol relocated in 1969 to a leased space in Kensington, Maryland. During the following decade, enrollment increased and so did the program offerings. In 1976 the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation to Capitol, and the National Science Foundation provided funding for new instructional scientific equipment. Quickly outgrowing its space, Capitol s leaders recognized a need for a permanent campus and began searching for the right location. In 1980 the college found its home in Laurel, Maryland. Capitol purchased the 52-acre former site of the Beltsville Speedway, built new academic facilities and opened the doors to students in Enrollment swelled and two more engineering technology degrees were added. Within the next decade a capital campaign and funding from the state of Maryland raised millions for buildings, equipment and a scholarship endowment. The campus expanded with Telecommunications Hall and the 340-seat Avrum Gudelsky Memorial Auditorium. In the late 1980s, Capitol s leadership again recognized the transformation in the institution. The technology-based curriculum had become broader, with an increasing incorporation of humanities and social science courses. With a spacious campus and four-year degrees, the school had shed its skin as a technical institute. Preferring a title and an environment that would better suit its presence, the Board of Trustees changed the school s name to Capitol College. Along with the name change came a plan to offer more degrees in engineering and management, build on-campus housing and convert from a quarterly academic calendar to a semester system. Master s degrees were introduced in the 1990s. The college began several outreach efforts and business partnerships, such as the NASA PREP summer program for minority students and the Maryland Distance Learning Network. Meanwhile, the college expanded the John G. and Beverly A. Puente Library, creating a spacious state-of-the-art facility with a multimedia teaching center. The opening of the William G. McGowan Academic Center in 2005 marked the next era for the college. The academic center hosts an expanded computer science department, the Space Operations Institute, and the BRAC-funded Cyber Battle Lab. In 2013, with a new century and millenium well under way, the time had come once again to take stock of Capitol s achievements and set a course for its future growth. The radio institute founded in 1927 had burgeoned over the decades in ways that few could have predicted. It had become a fullfledged institution of higher education, offering a wide palette of academic disciplines and degrees. Reflecting these changes, a fiveyear strategic plan was adopted in November 2013, paving the way for the college s transition to a university. Today Capitol is the only independent college in Maryland that specializes in providing a relevant education in engineering, business and related fields. It takes pride in its proven record of placing graduates in competitive careers with salaries that are higher than the industry average. As a respected regional leader, Capitol continues attracting the attention of government agencies and corporate partners. Through a partnership with NASA, Capitol offers academic programs in astronautical engineering and practical training at its Space Operations Institute. The National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security have designated Capitol a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has named the school one of its twelve educational partners. In 2010, Capitol introduced a doctor of science in information assurance to its academic repertoire, allowing students to pursue their education to the highest level in the discipline. While new innovations spur new developments and industries, the foundations that are taught at Capitol thinking critically, actively and creatively will remain. As it looks to the future, Capitol remains committed to providing students with a quality education and the relevant experience to excel in a changing world. The Centers of Excellence Capitol College has a vision, mandated by industry leaders, government officials, and education policy makers, to answer the call to provide a new generation of engineers and technology professionals who have higher General Information 6 Capitol College 7

Space Operations Institute The Space Operations Institute (SOI) was established at Capitol College in 2003 with a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It is a consortium of NASA, industry, government and education partners. The SOI builds on Capitol s established engineering foundation and works closely with NASA and industry partners to understand the aerospace industry s changing skills requirements. The SOI provides support educational programs that prepare students for careers in the aerospace industry. The SOI provides the infrastructure to provide hands-on experience in satellite mission operations and planning, and developing and operating a picosatellite ground system. Students enrolled at Capitol may apply for an industry sponsored or internal college SOI internships. Industry sponsored student interns work at NASA, the employers facility, or on campus. SOI interns work in the Aerospace Research Lab or SOI Control Center on development and ground system operations projects. The SOI provides students with practical experience that supplements their academic learning. The SOI currently has interns working on the Tropical Rainforest Measurement Mission (TRMM) at NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center, the James Webb Telescope at the Hubble Space Science Institute in Baltimore, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. SOI management is continually seeking new opportunities with NASA and private industry to expand training and learning opportunities for students. Center for Space Science Education and Public Outreach The Center for Space Science Education and Public Outreach (SSEPO) provides handson education and workforce development experiences for students in K-12, community colleges, colleges or universities and those who support them in achieving leadership careers in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The Center s vision is to assist in educating and developing the future leaders of the STEM career fields through utilizing space science, astronomy and other related areas of study at Capitol College to engage students of all ages. Working at the local, regional, and national levels, the Center will: assist the Capitol College Space Operations Institute in fulfilling their mission; provide hands-on educational experiences for middle school, high school, community college, and college students to both introduce them to STEM fields and continue to expand their interest in these fields as possible career choices; provide leadership development opportunities, in conjunction with the Innovation and Leadership Institute, to enable students to be future leaders within the STEM fields; support the dissemination of information regarding STEM workforce and leadership opportunities. Affiliations, Memberships and Partnerships The college s academic offerings are strengthened by relationships with government agencies, professional societies and private industry.

National Defense University Capitol College is a partner with the National Defense University icollege (formerly Information Resource Management College) to advance the professional skills and knowledge of active-duty military, veterans and select Department of Defense employees. This arrangement provides an opportunity for military and DoD students who have completed selected NDU programs to transfer up to 15 credits in lieu of Capitol College graduate coursework. National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security initially designated Capitol College as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) in 2003, after a thorough review of the master of science in information assurance (MSIA) curriculum. In 2007, Capitol became one of only three institutions nationwide to be certified as meeting all six standards (at the most advanced levels where applicable) as determined by the Committee on National Security Systems. Today, Capitol College remains the only institution with this all-inclusive mapping that delivers its program fully online. 8 Capitol College 9 General Information

8 Students successfully completing the requirements for the degree are awarded, in addition to the graduate degree, a federally accepted certificate attesting that they studied the requirements of the six national training standards. In the process of earning the MSIA, students have the opportunity to earn three post-baccalaureate certificates; Network Protection, IA Administration, and Security Management. For more information on these certificates see the Post-baccalaureate Certificates section of the college catalog. Maryland Community College Partner Institutions Capitol College has collaborated with ten Maryland colleges to provide transfer/articulation agreements in certain degree fields. These colleges include Anne Arundel Community College, Baltimore City Community College, College of Southern Maryland, Community College of Baltimore County, Hagerstown Community College, Harford Community College, Howard Community College, Montgomery Community College, Prince George s Community College and WorWic Community College. These agreements allow students from these participating institutions to easily transfer credits to Capitol College. Online Learning Capitol College offers all graduate degrees and certificates entirely online. In addition, undergraduate third and fourth year courses leading to a BS in Business Administration, Information Assurance, or Management of Information Technology are available online for degree completion at a distance. Students enrolled in Capitol s online programs meet in virtual classrooms using a web-based application that delivers interactive live classes. In addition, a course management system provides course materials, homework, grades, and discussion threads. Online students participate in real-time class sessions once or twice a week. During the live lectures, students view lecture slides while listening to professors and other students speaking in real-time. Student interactivity is encouraged and is made possible through chat and audio discussions. Similar to a traditional classroom, students can raise their hands using interface icons and ask questions using their microphones or by chatting. Outside of the live classroom, the knowledge exchange continues as students download and view course material, transmit homework assignments, post to discussion boards and collaborate with other class mates. A typical online course consists of 16 class sessions, alternating between synchronous( live ) lectures and asynchronous sessions. Asynchronous sessions can be recorded lectures or assignments that supplement topics discussed during the live lecture. Because software vendors constantly update the online platforms, Capitol College posts the latest computer system requirements for online learning on our support site, ask.captechu.edu. Use the search input box there to look for minimum system requirements or just minimum. In general, most computers manufactured after 2008 meet the minimum requirements for online learning. The computers will also need audio capabilities for speakers and microphones. Lecture audio uses Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), so students will need an Internet connection with sufficient bandwidth (usually DSL or cable Internet but even wireless mobile devices with data plans should be sufficient for most classes). Remember that minimum requirements are bare minimums: more memory, faster processing speed, and faster Internet connections will always improve the online class experience. Even though it is possible and convenient to attend online classes with mobile devices, they limit capacities required in some classes. For example, a student might be required to upload and present a PowerPoint presentation or use another application. To fully participate in a Capitol LIVE! virtual classroom, students must have access to a Windows or Linux PC or a Mac configured with a full-duplex sound card and a headset (or microphone and speakers). Note that graduate students in Information Assurance labs and selected advanced undergraduate courses are expected to have more recent Windows systems with considerable RAM memory and hard drive space. Students can get technical assistance by phone or and around-the-clock support via our website at ask.captechu.edu. Phone support is available every hour classes are in session including 8:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Friday; and 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at General Information 10 Capitol College 11

9 Academic Policies and Procedures Program Advisors Degree-seeking students are assigned academic advisors before registration. Students are encouraged to work closely with advisors in developing their programs of study. Academic advisors are available for guidance, but each student must assume final responsibility for conforming to college regulations and curriculum requirements. Registration Procedures Detailed registration information is provided before the beginning of each semester. Registration dates are listed in the college calendar beginning on page 110 and online. Students must be in good financial standing with the college to be eligible for registration services. Registration forms can be obtained and submitted at the Laurel campus or online. Late registration occurs during the first two weeks of the semester for all semesterlength courses, or between the first and second class meeting for all term-length courses (both undergraduate and graduate). No term-length course registrations will be accepted after the second class meeting. The last day to add or drop a class is listed in the college calendar beginning on page 110 and online. Cross Divisional Registration Students pursuing an undergraduate degree who wish to enroll in graduate courses must meet with the dean responsible for the course and receive approval from the dean prior to registration. This includes concurrent undergraduate students taking graduate level coursework to meet graduate degree requirements and students substituting graduate courses for undergraduate degree requirements. Courses taken at the graduate level to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements will not be counted toward the graduate level should the student choose to pursue a graduate degree. Course substitutions will be necessary for completing graduate credit requirements. Students interested in cross divisional registration should submit the appropriate paperwork to the Office of Registration and Records. Audited Courses Students who register to audit a course are charged the same tuition as those who register for credit. The grade of X is awarded at the end of the semester and is not used in computing the cumulative grade point average. Half-time, financial aid students that change to audit will have part or all of their aid returned to the federal government. Students receiving VA benefits will not receive payment for audited courses. Any student receiving financial aid contemplating an audit should contact the Office of Financial Aid. Once registered for audit, students are not permitted to change to credit after the first two weeks of the semester. The last day to change from credit to audit is listed in the college calendar beginning on page 110 and online. Independent Study Independent study in a course will be granted in only the most extraordinary circumstances. The professor who administers the independent study and the appropriate academic dean must give permission for the course. When permission is given, the professor organizes the course requirements, including exams, homework, lab assignments, research and position papers, to compensate for the absence of classroom participation. Students must be in good academic standing to petition for independent study. Students interested in independent studies should consult with the appropriate academic dean and submit all appropriate documentation to the Office of Registration and Records. Change of Degree Program Students who want to change degree programs must fill out a change of degree program form, which may be obtained in the Office of Registration and Records or online. The academic dean must approve all changes of degree programs. Students who change their degree program are required to meet all requirements of the new programs that are in effect at the time of the change. Transfer credits and courses that have already been completed will be applied toward the new degree program where appropriate. Any student receiving financial aid contemplating a change of degree should see the Office of Financial Aid. Completed documentation must be submitted to the Office of Registration and Records after academic dean approval. Double Degree Requirements Undergraduate students who are currently enrolled and want to pursue two degrees (AAS or BS) must have a cumulative GPA (grade point average) of 2.5 or higher. For a second BS degree, the student must complete a minimum of 150 credits, with a minimum of 18 credits distinction between majors, of which at least 12 must be upper-level credits completed at Capitol College. For a second AAS degree, the student must complete a minimum of 75 credits, with a minimum of nine credits distinction between majors, of which at least six must be 200-level or above. Undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in an AAS program and a different BS program must complete nine credits of distinction between the two degrees. Graduate students who want to obtain two degrees may overlap two to three courses, depending on the degree program, but must otherwise complete all the requirements for both degrees. Should more courses overlap than is approved, the student must take additional courses to make up the credit requirement. Double-degree-seeking graduate students are encouraged to consult their academic dean for advisement. All students declaring a second degree must have academic dean approval and complete the change of degree program form. This may be obtained in the Office of Registration and Records or online. Course Drop There are two course drop periods. The first course drop period occurs during the registration period and ends on the last day for a 25% refund. The second course drop period occurs following the period for 25% refund and continues until the date indicated on the academic calendar. For a course drop that takes place during the first period students are entitled to a percentage refund as outlined in the refund schedule. The course is removed from the student s transcript and no grade is assigned. A course drop that takes place during the second period results in a mark of W on the student s transcript. A grade of W does not affect students cumulative GPA. Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal from the course and does not eliminate a student s academic or financial responsibilities. If a student drops all classes for the semester (zero credits), he/she is considered withdrawing from the college and should follow the procedure for withdrawal (as listed in the next section). Deadline dates for dropping a course with or without a W from a course are listed in the college calendar on page 110 and online. Withdrawal from the College Students who want to withdraw from the college or are dropping from all classes in a term or semester must complete a withdrawal form from the Office of Student Life or online. Students who interrupt their attendance for less than one academic year and are in good standing with Capitol College at the time of the withdrawal do not need to reapply to the college. Also see Readmission. Failure to attend classes does not constitute withdrawal and does not eliminate students academic or financial responsibilities. Students cannot withdraw during the week of final exams. Withdrawal from the college may affect financial aid awards. Anyone receiving financial aid or VA benefits must see a financial aid administrator before withdrawing. Consult the college calendar on page 110 for specific withdrawal dates. Readmission Students who withdraw from the college are eligible for readmission at any time, unless they have been in violation of the college s academic regulations, or have been dismissed for disciplinary reasons. Students who have been admitted to the college and interrupt their attendance for more than one academic year (three consecutive semesters) must resubmit an application for admission. In this case, a readmitted student must meet the degree requirements in place at the time of readmission in order to qualify for graduation. Applications are available online. Arrangements for payment of outstanding tuition balances must be made with the Business Office before readmission is approved. Academic Policies 12 Capitol College 13

10 Leave of Absence Doctoral students may request a Leave of Absence (LOA) by completing the Request for Leave of Absence form on the mycapitol portal (Doctoral Student tab). When requesting an LOA, keep in mind all coursework must be completed within a five-year time period. Please note this does not include the additional two years allowed for dissertation completion. All LoA requests must be submitted in writing, include the reason for the request and be signed and dated. In order to adhere to federal regulations of the Department of Education, the LOA, together with any additional leaves of absence, must not exceed a total of 180 days in any 12-month period. The 12-month period begins on the initial date of your LOA. If you have not returned at the end of the 180-day period, the school is required to notify the Department of Education of your last date of attendance. This will affect your federal financial aid and your loan repayment status. Course Cancellation The college can cancel a course for which an insufficient number of students are enrolled. Students will be notified of a cancellation by the first class session, and any payments made will be refunded in full or credited to your next term. Course Prerequisites When planning schedules for upcoming semesters, students should pay special attention to the course prerequisites. Students must obtain a grade of C or better in prerequisites for degree required courses. Those students not meeting the course criteria will not be allowed to register without approval from the appropriate academic dean. Completion of English Courses Students seeking bachelor s degrees at Capitol College must complete EN-101 and EN-102 before being permitted to register for junior-level classes. Transfer students must have equivalent transfer credits for EN-101 and EN-102 before being permitted to register for junior-level classes. Transfer students of junior status who do not have equivalent transfer credits for EN-101 and EN-102 must meet with the dean of business and information management before registering. Class Attendance Each professor establishes regulations regarding class attendance at Capitol College. Regular class and laboratory attendance is necessary to achieve maximum success in college work. Students receiving financial aid who do not attend classes will lose their aid. Transcripts Student academic records are maintained exclusively by the Office of Registration and Records. These records are considered privileged documents between the student and the college and will be released only upon a signed, written request from the student, except as may be required by law. Transcripts will be issued when the student submits a signed request form and the student s financial account is current. A $10 transcript fee is assessed for each issuance. Transcript request forms are available in the Office of Registration and Records and on the mycapitol portal. Capitol College will neither issue a transcript that reflects only part of a student s record nor make copies of transcripts on file from other colleges or universities. Federal guidelines prohibit the faxing or ing of grades and transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are available at any time with proper photo identification if the student s financial account is current. Summer Session The undergraduate summer semester is composed of 8- and 11-week sessions with a week for final examinations. All summer sessions will contain the same amount of material normally covered during a semester. Class schedules will be modified to accommodate the shortened period. Please refer to the college calendar beginning on page 110 for the summer session schedule. Graduate online courses offered in the summer session maintain the 8-week accelerated term and 16-week semester. Identification Cards All enrolled undergraduate students will receive a Capitol College identification card. ID cards are required to check out laboratory equipment or library materials. The student activity fee covers the cost of the original ID card. At the beginning of each semester, information about obtaining an ID card is posted on campus and online. Graduate students may request an ID card from the Office of Student Life. Scholastic Standing Grading System The quality of a student s academic performance is evaluated by letter grades that are assigned quality points as follows: Quality Grade Standard Points A Excellent 4 B Good 3 C Average* 2 D Below average** 1 F Failing 0 I Incomplete 0 NG No grade 0 P Pass 0 R Repeat 0 S Satisfactory 0 U Unsatisfactory 0 V Validation credit 0 W Withdrawn (officially) 0 X Audit 0 T Transfer credit 0 *A grade of C shows minimum expectations have been met at the graduate level. **Grades of D will not apply toward graduate program requirements. Grade Point Average At the end of each semester, averages are computed for each student s record to indicate the general level of his or her academic standing. The first is the scholarship level for the semester. The second is the cumulative grade point average, indicating the scholarship level for all work taken at the college to date. In cases where a student retakes a course, only the highest grade is used in computing the CGPA. The previous grade remains on record as information only. To graduate, undergraduate students must have a minimum 2.0 CGPA and a 2.0 GPA in their degree program. Graduate students must have a minimum 3.0 CGPA and a 3.0 GPA in their current degree program. Incomplete Grades An incomplete (I) grade will not be given except in the case of a true emergency that can be documented by medical records, death certificates, etc. Even if a true emergency exists, a student will not be allowed an extension (an I grade) unless that student has been attending classes and has kept up with the work before the emergency. When an I grade is submitted, the professor will complete an incomplete grade form in the Office of Registration and Records explaining the reasons for the I grade and listing the student s grades in the course. The student must then complete the work by the end of the fourth week of the next term, or the I will be converted to an F (unless the professor has specified that the I be converted to a C or D). After six months, the Academic Affairs Council must approve changes in grades. No Grade Mark When it is not appropriate to award a grade, a mark of NG will be given. NG grades are not calculated in the student s term or CGPA. Grade Reports Grade reports are available at http// mycapitol.captechu.edu within three weeks after the last day of final exams. Students who want to have grades sent to sponsors must complete the proper request form available in the Office of Registration and Records or online. Federal regulations prohibit the use of phone, or fax for official grade distribution. Grade Appeal Students who believe their posted grade is incorrect should speak directly to the professor. If the student and professor cannot resolve the issue in a satisfactory manner, the student may write a letter clearly explaining the situation to the appropriate academic dean. If the academic dean and student are unable to resolve the issue in a satisfactory manner, the student may appeal in writing to the vice president for academic affairs. The vice president will review the situation and may seek the advice of the Academic Affairs Council. The decision of the vice president is final and no further review will be granted. All 14 Capitol College 15 Academic Policies

11 appeals must be filed by the fourth week of the next term. Grade Changes Occasionally, a grade must be changed as errors do occur. However, grade changes will not be accepted later than six months after a term has ended; therefore, if a student truly feels that a mistake has been made, he or she must investigate as soon as possible after the grade is issued. (see Grade Appeal above) Dean s List for Full-time Students Full-time undergraduate students who have GPAs of 3.5 or higher, and no failing grades for the semester, qualify for the dean s list. Dean s list designation is included on the student s permanent record. Dean s List for Part-time Students Part-time undergraduate students taking at least six semester credits, who have GPAs of 3.5 or higher and no failing grades for the semester, qualify for the dean s list for part-time students. Dean s list designation is included on the student s permanent record. Academic Performance Academic Standing Students seeking a bachelor s or associate degree are in good academic standing if they have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in their degree program and are not on academic suspension. Students seeking a master s or doctoral degree are in good academic standing if they have a CGPA of at least 3.0 and are not on academic suspension. Repeating a Class A specific course may be repeated twice in order to improve a grade or replace a W or X. Therefore, a student may take a specific course only three times. Three-time enrollment is limited to a maximum of five different courses during a student s academic career. The higher grade is used and the lower grade is omitted in computing the CGPA. All grades are recorded on the student s transcript. Any student who has taken a course required for their degree three times and has not achieved a satisfactory grade will be dismissed from that academic program. The dismissed student is permitted to apply for any other program that does not require that specific course. An academically dismissed student with extenuating circumstances can appeal in writing to the departmental dean for recommendation to the vice president of academic affairs. Satisfactory Academic Progress for Students Receiving Financial Aid Undergraduate and graduate students receiving federal aid must meet satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standards or risk the cancellation of financial awards and repayment of funds already received. See page 25 for the policy. Academic Probation Academic probation alerts students that they are in academic trouble and will be suspended from the college if their GPA and CGPA are not brought up to good academic standing (see above). Undergraduate students are placed on academic probation under the following conditions: If a student registers for MA-005 or EN-001 and does not complete the course with a P If the CGPA of an undergraduate student with fewer than 30 attempted credits falls below 1.7 If the CGPA of an undergraduate student with more than 30 attempted credits falls below 2.0. Undergraduate students on academic probation must have a mandatory meeting with their advisor before registration and may not register for more than 12 semester credits, or no more than four courses. Master s degree students whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 are placed on last warning. Students on academic probation will be given three semesters (registered for coursework) to raise their CGPA to 3.0 and must consult with their advisor on the best course options. Doctoral students must maintain a 3.0 GPA. A grade of C or below is not acceptable and if obtained, the class must be repeated the next semester as an independent study or the student must move to a different cohort group. If a B or higher is not obtained on the third attempt, the student will be academically dismissed. Academic Suspension Undergraduate students who have not completed the prerequisites for MA-110 or MA-114 and EN-101 through placement testing, or successful completion of MA-005 and EN-001 after attempting 24 credit hours, will be suspended from the college until it is demonstrated to the faculty that they can achieve and maintain good academic standing at the college level. Undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA has been below 2.0 for three consecutive semesters will be suspended from the college for one academic semester after which they may return to the college. Students suspended from the college are not relieved of their financial obligations. Upon return, students will remain on probation and must achieve and maintain good academic standing or be suspended from the college until it is demonstrated to the faculty that they can achieve and maintain good academic standing at the college level. To demonstrate to the faculty that a student can achieve and maintain good academic standing at the college level, he or she must complete at least six academic courses (a minimum of 18 credits) with grades of a C or better at another accredited college or college. Before a student is readmitted to Capitol College, the director of admissions will review his or her file. Academic Dismissal After a second suspension, undergraduate students who have been readmitted to Capitol College after completing 18 credits at another institution must earn a 2.0 GPA each semester. If their GPA falls below 2.0 at any time, they will be dismissed and not permitted to return to Capitol College. Graduate students who fail to reach the 3.0 requirement in the allowed period will be automatically dismissed and may not be readmitted to the college for at least one year after the effective date of dismissal. Students dismissed from the college are not relieved of their financial obligations. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs regional office will be notified if students receiving VA educational benefits are suspended or terminated. The academic dean will consider re-entry requests on an individual basis from students who have been dismissed for unsatisfactory progress. The Office of Registration and Records will maintain a record of each VA student s grades in accordance with VA regulations. A student can request official transcripts from the Office of Registration and Records as long as his or her financial accounts are current. Disciplinary Dismissal The continued enrollment of any student is dependent upon proper conduct. Failure to comply with the college s regulations, or conduct deemed by the faculty as inconsistent with general good order, is regarded as sufficient cause for irreversible dismissal. The college reserves the right to terminate a student s enrollment at any time for cause. Students dismissed from the college are not relieved of their financial obligations. Matriculation Classification of Undergraduate Students Freshman 29 semester credits or fewer Sophomore semester credits Junior semester credits Senior 96 semester credits or more Doctoral students are considered candiates for the D.Sc. upon approval of the doctoral proposal. Residency Requirements A minimum of 15 semester credits, including 12 semester credits in the student s degree program, must be completed at Capitol College in order to receive an associate degree. At least 30 semester hours of academic credit must be earned by direct instruction. Direct instruction does not include instruction through correspondence, credit for prior learning, cooperative education activities, practica, internships, externships, apprenticeships, portfolio review, departmental examinations or challenge examinations. A minimum of 30 semester credits, including 18 semester credits in the student s degree program, must be completed at Capitol College in order to receive a bachelor s degree. At least 60 semester hours of academic credit must be earned by direct instruc- 16 Capitol College 17 Academic Policies

12 tion. Direct instruction means synchronous or asynchronous instruction for academic credit that allows regular interaction between student and instructor, such as lectures, laboratory instruction, interactive instructional television, delayed video online instruction and (if regular interaction is available from an instructor) independent study. An exception is made for undergraduate active duty military. The residency requirement is 25% of the degree requirements for campus based programs and 30% for online programs. For all BS degrees, at least 27 credits must be 300 level or above to qualify for graduation. Students who want to take courses at another institution for possible transfer after enrolling at Capitol College must receive prior written permission from the appropriate academic dean. Transfer credit approval forms are available at the Office of Registration and Records and online. Graduate degrees must be completed in their entirety at Capitol College, with the exception of students transferring courses in accordance with the transfer credit policy on page 18 of this catalog. Students pursuing a Capitol College certificate must complete all required coursework through Capitol College. Enrollment Status Undergraduate 1-11 credits is considered part time credits is considered full time Graduate 1-8 credits is considered part time 9 or more credits is considered full time For federal and Veterans benefits enrollment requirements, see page 28. Graduation Requirements Capitol College conducts the annual commencement ceremony at the Laurel campus in May. Transcripts always reflect the exact semester the degree program is completed. The date degree conferred information on transcripts and diplomas coincides with the date of the May commencement ceremony for spring semester graduates and with the last day of classes in the semester for summer and fall semester graduates. Undergraduate Requirements Undergraduate students must have satisfactorily completed the curriculum requirements for their degree program with a CGPA and degree program GPA of at least 2.0 and must have satisfied the Capitol College residency requirements as listed. Undergraduate students who complete all degree requirements by the end of the summer session are permitted to take part in the commencement ceremonies as degree candidates. If a student is not enrolled for the summer by April 15, permission to participate as a degree candidate will not be granted. Undergraduate students must file an application for graduation with the Office of Registration and Records no later than six months before the semester of completion. The student s file is reviewed and forwarded to the appropriate academic dean for final approval. Students are subsequently notified of approval and status. Applications for graduation are available in the Office of Registration and Records and online. The graduation fee, due by April 15, cannot be waived. Undergraduate students are considered degree candidates only when the above procedures have been completed. Students who change their plans for graduation must notify the Office of Registration and Records in writing. Graduate Requirements Graduate students must have a minimum 3.0 CGPA. Grades of D will not apply towards graduate program requirements. Graduate students must submit an application for graduation no later than the end of January to be considered and included in the May commencement ceremony. The graduation fee, due by April 15, cannot be waived. The form, available online and in the Office of Records and Registration, is required so that orders for diplomas and commencement regalia can be placed before commencement. Diplomas will be released only after graduation fees are paid. Graduate students who complete all degree requirements by the end of the summer (term I, term II or in summer semester classes) are permitted to take part in commencement ceremonies as degree candidates. If a student is not enrolled for the summer by April 15, permission to participate as a degree candidate will not be granted. Time Limit for Degree Completion Graduate students are required to maintain satisfactory progress toward the completion of degree requirements, which must be accomplished within seven years. The seven-year period begins when the oldest course applied to the degree was completed. This includes any transfer credits from other institutions. Doctoral students are required to maintain satisfactory progress toward the completion of course requirements, which must be accomplished within five years. Students then have an additional two years to complete their dissertation. Graduation Clearance In the final weeks of their last semester of study, students should check with the Business Office, the Office of Financial Aid, the Office of Residence Life and the Puente Library to be certain that they have no outstanding obligations. Diplomas and transcripts will not be issued for students who have outstanding library books or fines, outstanding balances in the Business Office, or for financial aid recipients who have not had exit interviews with the Office of Financial Aid. Academic Honors Honors are awarded and noted on the transcript of students who graduate with the following cumulative GPAs: Undergraduate summa cum laude magna cum laude cum laude Master s 4.0 with honors If an undergraduate student is completing more than one degree, the overall CGPA is used to calculate honors for the multiple degree programs. If a master s student is completing more than one degree, the CGPA within their degree program is used to determine honors. Honor Societies Alpha Chi National Honor Society The Maryland Beta Chapter represents the Alpha Chi National Honor Society at Capitol College. Membership is based on demonstrated service to the college community, good reputation and character, as well as high academic standing. Juniors and seniors enrolled in one of the bachelor s degree programs at Capitol College for at least one year and who rank among the top 10 percent of their class are eligible for election to the chapter by the faculty. Alpha Chi offers opportunities for public performance at conventions; publication in the Alpha Chi Recorder; leadership through National Council membership; financial assistance through National Benedict Fellowships, Nolle Scholarships and several regional scholarships; and participation in local chapter projects and activities.

Membership in Sigma Beta Delta is the highest national recognition a business student can 18 Capitol College 19 Academic Policies

13 receive at a college or college with a Sigma Beta Delta chapter. To be eligible for membership, a business student must rank in the upper 20 percent of the junior, senior or master s class and be invited to membership by the faculty officers. Transfer Credits Undergraduate Transfer Policies Unofficial transfer credit evaluations are completed during the admissions process in consultation with the academic departments. Once the transfer student is enrolled at Capitol College, an official evaluation is conducted by the assistant director of registration and records in consultation with the academic departments and approved by the director of registration and records. The approved transfer credits are then added to the student s permanent academic record and the student will receive written notification of the official transfer evaluation from the Office of Registration and Records. Once students matriculate at Capitol College, they must meet the academic standards for their degree program. Capitol College will consider credit for transfer from coursework completed at a regionally accredited institution, ABET-accredited program, or, in special cases, other qualified institutions acceptable to the standards of Capitol College. Capitol College will consider transfer credit for courses taken at an unaccredited institution on a probationary status, in which the student must complete a minimum of 24 credits at Capitol College with a CGPA of 2.0 before the credits will transfer. Coursework must also meet the following requirements: Courses must be relevant to the Capitol College curriculum. Only a passing grade of C or higher will be considered for transfer (courses are evaluated and transferred individually). Grades do not transfer, therefore transfer credits are not used in computing the CGPA. Capitol College credit requirements are based on the semester-credit system. Transfer credits from other institutions operating on other academic calendar systems will be converted to semester credits. The grade of D will not be accepted for credit even when it is part of a degree. Comply with Residency Requirements as stated on page 16. Capitol College will transfer a maximum of 70 semester-credit hours from any combination of the following: community or junior colleges* proprietary or technical schools the military College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Advanced Placement (AP) International Baccalaureate (IB) Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)** * Credits transferred are limited to the first two years and up to 50% of the baccalaureate degree program. ** MOOC coursework will be considered for transfer credit if the courses are approved by the American Council of Education (ACE). There is no maximum amount of credits that can be transferred from a four-year accredited institution as long as residency requirements are met. Military Credits Capitol College will award credit for military courses based on the American Council on Education s Guide to the Evaluation for Educational Experiences in the Armed Forces and program relevancy. Applicants must present a certificate of completion and/or an official DD214 or DD295 to the Capitol College Office of Registration and Records. Industrial Courses Capitol College will not accept credits for courses taken at an industrial site unless the American Council on Education has approved the course. Students who have taken industrial courses may elect to take validation exams (see below). Continuing Education Units Capitol College will not accept continuing education units (CEU) for transfer. CLEP Tests The official results of all CLEP exams must be submitted to the Office of Registration and Records no later than two semesters before completion. Validation Exams Students who can demonstrate competence in a subject without having completed the specific coursework, due to relevant work or life experience, may take a specially arranged validation examination. Not every course, however, lends itself to the validation process, and the appropriate academic dean must grant permission for the examination to be given. Validation examinations are thorough and cannot be taken a second time. After paying the proper fee in the Business Office, interested students may register for a validation exam in the Office of Registration and Records, where forms and procedures are available. Students who pass the validation examination receive a V on their transcript and the appropriate number of semester credits. No partial credit or quality points are awarded. Professional Certifications Capitol College will consider transfer credit for industry recognized certifications that are relevant to the program curriculum. Waived/Substituted Courses In some circumstances, transfer credits may count toward a waived or substituted course. If a Capitol College course is waived, the student must complete the equivalent number of credits in a related subject area to fulfill the requirements of the degree. If a course is substituted, the credit is transferred and the requirement is therefore considered complete. Waivers and substitutions are conducted by the assistant director of registration and records and approved in writing by the appropriate academic dean. Engineering Programs Students transferring credits into the engineering programs must follow additional guidelines. Credits for military, vocational or technical training may be used to satisfy some electronics- and technology-based freshman and sophomore level EL courses. Such courses do not fulfill the objectives of engineering, engineering science, or social science courses; they may be used as engineering electives in the engineering programs. Graduate Transfer Policies Unofficial transfer credit evaluations are completed during the admissions process in consultation with the academic departments. Once the student is enrolled at Capitol College, an official evaluation is conducted by the assistant director of registration and records in consultation with the academic departments and approved by the director of registration and records. The approved transfer credits are then added to the student s permanent academic record and the student will receive written notification of the official transfer evaluation from the Office of Registration and Records. Depending on the program, a maximum of six to nine semester credits of comparable accredited coursework taken elsewhere may be applied toward a graduate degree. Only courses with a B or better will be accepted for transfer. Capitol College will not accept continuing education units (CEUs) for transfer. Results from a certification exam may not be used for transfer. Validation exams for credit are not available at the graduate level. In some cases, military training and ACEaccredited government courses may be transferred. Official transcripts of such coursework may be submitted for evaluation of transfer credit. These materials should be submitted to the Office of Registration and Records for evaluation. The graduate programs will not award transfer credit for any course identified as correspondence. Credit that is part of a completed graduate degree may be used as transfer credit. Transfer credits are limited to six credits in 30-credit programs and nine credits in programs containing more than 30 credits except in the case of students who participated in selected NDU programs (see page 9 for details). Once the student enrolls at Capitol College, all remaining credits must be completed at Capitol College. The time limit for degree completion applies to transfer credits. Therefore, any course that was taken more than seven years before the date of graduation will not fulfill graduation requirements at the master s level and will be removed from the student s transcript. At the doctoral level, courses taken within five years of admission will be considered for transfer. Once accepted, doctoral transfer credits do not expire. Transfer credits cannot be applied to any capstone or Academic Policies 20 Capitol College 21

Full-time Student Tuition Lock Capitol College offers a tuition-lock program for undergraduate students registered full time. Tuition is locked in from the students first full-time semester and remains unchanged for up to five years. To remain eligible for the tuition-lock rate, students must adhere to the following terms and conditions: Maintain continuous full-time enrollment during the academic year (minimum 12 credits per semester). Keep all financial accounts up to date. (Consult the academic calendar on page 110 for due dates.) Remain in good academic standing. (See page 15 for academic performance.) If these terms are not met, the student will no longer be eligible for the tuition lock and will be subject to the prevailing tuition rate. Payment Options Undergraduate Payment Options Full payment at time of registration Deferred payment plan Financial aid (see page 24) VA Benefits (see page 28) Employer sponsorship Undergraduate Deferred Payment Plan The undergraduate deferred payment plan allows semester students to pay their tuition in three installments: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the end of the fourth week of classes and one-third on or before the end of the eighth week. Students taking 8-week classes may also pay their tuition in three installments: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the second week of classes and one-third on or before the sixth week of classes. The cost of the deferred payment plan is $30, which is due with the first installment. Nonpayment of tuition deposits may result in registration cancellation. Failure to adhere to the arrangements of the deferred payment plan may result in immediate dismissal from the college. Students who abuse the deferred payment plan will not be allowed to defer their tuition in the future. Students on academic last warning are not eligible to use the deferred payment plan and must pay their tuition in full at registration. Undergraduate Employer Sponsorship Undergraduate students who are sponsored by an employer or other appropriate third party must submit authorization forms to the Business Office at the time of registration. Sponsors will be billed directly. Tuition not covered will be the responsibility of the student. Undergraduate Employer Tuition Reimbursement Undergraduate Students who are reimbursed by their employers must pay in full or use the undergraduate deferred payment plan. Master s Program Payment Options Full payment at time of registration Deferred payment plan Financial aid (see page 24) VA Benefits (see page 28) Employer sponsorship Employer reimbursement Doctorate Program Payment Options Full payment prior to start of classes Financial aid (see page 24) VA Benefits (see page 28) Employer sponsorship Employer reimbursement Master s Programs Deferred Payment Plan Masters students are required to pay 50 percent of tuition upon registration. If tuition is not paid in full at the start of classes, students will be automatically enrolled in the deferred payment plan and assessed a $30 deferment fee. The remaining balance is due four weeks after classes begin. Nonpayment of tuition could result in cancellation of student registration. Graduate Employer Sponsorship Graduate students (masters and doctorate) who are sponsored by an employer or other appropriate third party must submit authorization forms to the Business Office 22 Capitol College 23 Tuition/Financial Aid

15 at the time of registration. Sponsors will be billed directly. Tuition not covered will be the responsibility of the student. Graduate Employer Tuition Reimbursement Graduate students (masters and doctorate) who are reimbursed by an employer must submit authorization forms to the Business Office at the time of registration along with one third (1/3) of the tuition cost. Balance is due ten (10) days after classes end. Students who do not pay within the ten days will be subject to deferment fees and required to follow the standard payment options in the future. Financial Aid All students who receive financial aid are required to pay the remaining balance in full or follow the appropriate deferred payment plan. If funds have not been received by the college from a particular financial aid source, that amount will not be credited to the student s account and cannot be provided to the student, even if notification of the award has been received. Book Vouchers All students receiving financial aid in excess of tuition, fees and on-campus housing charges may be considered for a book voucher. The Business Office must receive all financial aid proceeds, including federal and private loans, for students to receive a book voucher. Obligation for Payment Tuition and fees for all students become an obligation in accordance with the provisions of the refund schedule in this section. Failure to pay any debt when due to the college is considered sufficient cause to bar the student from classes or examinations or to withhold diploma, scholastic certificate or transcript of record. Students with outstanding accounts will be sent to collections. Collection or litigation expenses associated with this account are the responsibility of the student. Students whose accounts are past due one semester will be notified that their accounts are in jeopardy of being referred to a collection agency. Refund Policy Dropping or Withdrawing from Classes It is the students responsibility to officially drop any class in which they are enrolled. This includes situations in which the student never attended the first class meeting. Never attending or ceasing to attend classes does not constitute an official withdrawal or relieve students of their financial obligation to Capitol College. Full tuition refunds are available only to students who officially drop a class before the first day of classes. After the first day of classes, any student who drops or withdraws from class will be subject to the tuition refund schedule, outlined below. Refunds are effective on the date the drop or withdrawal is submitted to the Office of Registration and Records. Refunds are computed according to the following schedule and are a percentage based on the full tuition amount for each course. The percentage listed equates to the student refund in the event the balance was paid in full before the start of class. Students on company contract may be personally responsible for the balance of their tuition, in the event their company only pays for completed courses. Please refer to the published semester and term calendars beginning on page 110 of this catalog or online for specific dates of refunds. Tuition Refund Schedules 8-week Term Courses 100% Student drops before the first day of classes 75% Student drops during the first week of classes 50% Student drops during the second week of classes 25% Student drops during the third week of classes 0% Student drops after the third week of classes 16-week Semester Courses 100% Student drops before the first day of classes 75% Student drops during the first or second week of classes 50% Student drops during the third week of classes 25% Student drops during the fourth week of classes 0% Student drops after the fourth week of classes Federal Return of Funds Policy The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed or take a leave of absence before completing 60% of a payment period or term. The federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations. If a student leaves Capitol College before completing 60% of a payment period or term, the financial aid office recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula: Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid. Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula: Aid to be returned = (100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid) multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term. If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the institution. If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal disbursement that must be paid within 120 days of the student s withdrawal. Refunds are allocated in the following order: Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans (other than PLUS loans) Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans Federal Perkins Loans Direct PLUS Loans Federal Pell Grants for which a return of funds is required Academic Competitiveness Grant National SMART Grant Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants for which a return of funds is required According to federal regulation, a financial aid student who receives all Fs during a period of enrollment is considered not to have attended any of his or her classes; therefore, all financial aid received for that period of enrollment must be returned to the Department of Education. Financial aid will not have to be returned to the federal government if at least one of the student s professors verifies that the student has been in class and really earns the failing grade. The return of financial aid does not relieve the student of financial obligations. Financial Aid Capitol College understands that paying for college is a major hurdle for parents and students. To help families meet tuition and living expenses, the college offers a variety of financial assistance programs including loans, work-study, scholarships and grants to help cover tuition and living expenses. Regardless of income level, all degreeseeking students are encouraged to apply for assistance. Financial aid is available to both full- and part-time undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. Audited courses, some repeated courses, and credit by examination are not counted as meeting enrollment requirements. A student receiving financial aid must demonstrate satisfactory progress toward degree completion. The Capitol College student handbook contains additional information about financial aid at Capitol College. Application Procedures One of the most important aspects of the financial aid process is to apply for assistance as early as possible. The application due dates are priority deadlines. Students who meet the priority deadlines enjoy the security of having their award authorization ready in time for class registration. 1. You must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid 24 Capitol College 25 Tuition/Financial Aid

16 (FAFSA) to apply for federal and state financial aid. Complete the application by March 1 or as far in advance of the starting term as possible. Applying online with FAFSA on the web at is faster and easier than using a paper FAFSA. Be sure to list Capitol College on the FAFSA, School Code so the FAFSA information will be electronically forwarded to the college. A paper FAFSA can be obtained by requesting one from the Department of Education at After reviewing your processed FAFSA data, the Office of Financial Aid will send an award letter listing the awards for which you are eligible. 3. Sign and return one copy of the award letter to the Office of Financial Aid. Students may also review, accept and decline their financial aid on the myfa portal. This portal is located within mycapitol and is available 24 hours a day from any location. Renewal of Financial Aid Financial aid is not automatically renewed, except as may be noted. The entire financial aid application process must be completed every year in order for your request for federal, state and institutional aid to be considered. Enrollment Status for Financial Aid Undergraduate and Graduate Federal 6-8 credits is considered half time 9-11 credits is considered three-quarter time 12+ credits is considered full time Undergraduate Veterans 3 to 5 credits is considered part time 6 to 8 credits is considered half time 9 to 11 credits is considered threequarter time 12+ credits is considered full time Graduate Veterans 3 or more credits taken during an 8-week term session is considered full time 3 to 5 credits taken during a 16-week semester is considered greater than one-quarter but less than half time 6 or more credits taken during a 16-week semester is considered full time Continuing Eligibility The Office of Financial Aid reserves the right to review or modify financial aid commitments at any time based on information affecting eligibility. This includes the availability of funds, changes in financial status, satisfactory academic progress, and changes in enrollment status. Return of Federal Funds Students who have received financial aid awards and withdraw from classes (officially or unofficially) may be required to return a portion of the federal funds. See the federal return of funds policy on page 24. Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Standards The Department of Education has passed a new federal satisfactory academic progress policy effective July 1, This policy applies to both undergraduate and graduate students receiving federal financial student aid funds. This financial aid SAP policy is separate from the college s general satisfactory academic progress policy. Under the Federal SAP policy there are two components: a qualitative SAP component (Grade Point Average) and a quantitative SAP standard (earned credit hours versus attempted credit hours). Students receiving federal student aid must be in compliance with both standards in order to be considered making financial aid satisfactory academic progress. Repeated Coursework A student may repeat any coursework previously taken in the student s program as long as the repeated course is not a result of more than one repetition of a previously passed course. Undergraduate Student Requirements Qualitative Standard (Grade Point Average Component) A minimum cumulative Grade Point Average of 1.7 for undergraduate students who have attempted fewer than 30 semester credit hours; a minimum Grade Point Average of 2.0 for undergraduate students who have attempted 30 semester credit hours or more or have completed their second academic year, whichever comes first. Transfer credits are also counted in the earned credit hours. Quantitative Standard (number of credit hours attempted versus number of credit hours earned) Under the quantitative component of the financial aid satisfactory academic progress standard, an undergraduate student must successfully complete coursework within a certain time frame. Charts showing the minimum number of credits you must earn each enrollment period and year of study are in the table below and on the college website. Additionally, for an undergraduate the time frame cannot exceed 150% of the published length of the program measured in academic years or credit hours attempted, as determined by the college. For instance, if the published length of your academic program is 120 credit hours, the maximum period must not exceed 180 (120 x 1.5) attempted hours. To be in compliance, you must complete your credit hours as listed in the chart to the right. Not meeting these standards will place you on financial aid warning for one semester. A student on financial aid Undergraduate Credit Hours warning will receive financial aid for one more semester. However, before registering for classes the student must meet with the college advisor to develop a success plan and to receive approval for courses the student wishes to register for during the warning period. A student under financial aid warning will have his/her financial aid terminated if the standards (GPA and credit hour) are not met following the warning period. Graduate Student (Master s and Doctoral) Financial Aid Progress Requirements Master s and Doctoral degree students receiving federal student aid Graduate students must maintain a 3.00 Cumulative Grade Point Average. Not meeting this standard will place you on financial aid warning for one semester. A student on financial aid warning will receive financial aid for one more semester. However, before registering for classes the student must consult with their advisor on the best course options. A student under financial aid warning will have his/her financial aid terminated if the GPA standard is not met during the warning period. Graduate students must adhere to the time limit for degree completion. See page 17. Half-time Students Year Credits (5.5 credits per semester) Three-quarter-time Students Year X X X Credits (7.5 credits X X X per semester) Full-time Students Year X X X X X X Credits (11 credits per semester) X X X X X X Financial Aid Termination Undergraduate and Graduate (Master s and Doctoral) students An undergraduate or graduate student whose financial aid is terminated following the warning period will not receive financial aid again unless the student has submitted an appeal requesting financial aid reinstatement. In your letter of appeal, you must explain the reason for your poor academic performance and provide medical documentation or other documents which help to explain your exceptional circumstances. Your letter of appeal and accompanying documentation will be sent to the college s Tuition/Financial Aid 26 Capitol College 27

17 Financial Aid Appeals Committee for review. You will be notified in writing of the Committee s decision. If your appeal is granted you will be placed in a probationary status for one semester.
